Massive Record-Breaking Cheese Board Weighs Over 4,000 LBS

Guinness doesn't just go around recognizing everything as a record, but this massive cheeseboard in Madison, WI, definitely made the cut.

With over 145 different types of cheeses, the 35-foot long board consisted of just about every cheese you could think of.

Put together by the Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin, the Guinness World Record breaking cheese board checked in at 4,437 pounds (just over two tons). That's the weight equivalent of four sets of beluga whale testicles.

The previous record was held by Bel Leerdammer in the Netherlands, as two local cheese factories joined forces to create a 3,375 pound cheese board back in 2015.

This Wisconsin cheese board destroyed that record by over 1,000 pounds of cheese.

It only makes sense that Wisconsin holds this new record, as they are the state that makes 48 percent of the country's specialty cheese. As any Packer fan will tell you, it's pretty much the cheese capital, and deserves this type of honor more than anyone.
